Psalm 119:18

Psalm 119:18

“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.”

We need God’s help in seeing how beautiful He is. We are not capable of grasping the depth, and breadth, and width of his amazing mercy displayed on the cross. Similarly, we cannot have a right perspective of His law without His help. It is a good thing to pray this way, and ask that we would see how wondrous His law really is.

If we’re Christians, this has been our experience. We know this to be true. We’ve seen how fruitless it is to worship idols. But, we still foolishly follow them. Ask God today to help you see how much better He is. Not just so your life is better here, but for His glory, and in order to condition yourself for what’s coming; eternal life with Him. Christian hedonism is a term John Piper has used, and is a helpful way to understand our time in this life. As Piper says, “He is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in Him.”
